Native Instruments recently launched its “DJ Hardware Guide,” an extensive online resource that provides DJs with practical information about how to best choose, set up and operate the components of a computer-based DJ setup. The guide caters to DJs of all styles and levels. It explains the basics of digital DJing in a newcomer-friendly way, and details different setup types ranging from compact laptop-only setups to professional time-code-controlled systems. Special attention is given to different types of hardware controllers, and how they are best combined to form a powerful and affordable DJ system. It also ties in with the recently announced “TRAKTOR Ready” compatibility label, and includes a comprehensive buyers’ guide with detailed information on all controllers that are guaranteed to provide full compatibility with TRAKTOR 3, TRAKTOR SCRATCH and TRAKTOR LE.
